Osman Yousefzada is a British born multi-disciplinary artist.

His practice revolves around modes of story telling, merging the autobiographical with the fictional and “ritual.”  Osman’s work is concerned with the representation and rupture of the migrational experience and makes reference to socio-political issues of today.

Yousefzada explores these themes through moving image and text works, sculpture, garment making and aspects of performance.
